High-performing businesses need a CFO that engages beyond the spreadsheet. I am a strategic CFO who can support organizations from turnarounds, to transformations, to scaling unprecedented growth. My broad experience in finance and operations is a rare asset I bring to every client by partnering with leadership to assess current state, define the future, and implement the plan to get there.
A fresh perspective to complex challenges is often what an organization needs to drive results. I am a strategic partner that helps create and capture enterprise value through the development, alignment, and execution of an organization’s strategies across all value streams. My nature is to “build” and I bring that mentality to the financial strategy and operational management to achieve organizational results.
Change requires executives to build bridges across departments, level-set goals, and drive accountability. I have led multiple mergers, acquisitions, and technology implementations and enjoy creating the playbook to drive and accelerate successful integrations. Organizations move farther, faster, as a team, and I collaborate with the entire organization, from the c-suite to the frontline team member, to quickly create value.
A strong CFO appreciates the operational knowledge of how an organization works. I enjoy rolling up my sleeves to dig into the details and am an experienced leader with teams from 5 to 2,500 employees in building efficient, effective processes that scale. With a focus on continuous improvement and linking operations to financial performance, I bring actionable information to leadership that helps accelerate results.
